Arsenal 4-4 Tottenham

  • 0-1 David Bentley, 13′
  • 1-1 Mikael Silvestre, 37′
  • 2-1 William Gallas, 46′
  • 3-1 Emmanuel Adebayor, 64′
  • 3-2 Darren Bent, 67′
  • 4-2 Robin Van Persie, 68′
  • 4-3 Jermaine Jenas, 89′
  • 4-4 Aaron Lennon, 90′

I didn’t get to see the match – along with devalued currency, one of the perils of living in the U.S. – but I can certainly say that it’s a disappointing result for the Gunners. There were plenty of storylines here, not the least of which was Harry Redknapp’s second game at the helm for Spurs, and he proved himself yet again with a high-stakes draw secured at the last second (almost literally) when Aaron Lennon put the ball in off the rebound after Modric’s shot bounced off the post. Plenty of yellow cards, mostly for Spurs (Diaby did get one at the very end), and hotly contested throughout. Or so I heard.

Hull 0-3 Chelsea

  • 0-1 Frank Lampard, 3′
  • 0-2 Nicolas Anelka, 50′
  • 0-3 Florent Malouda, 75′

Chelsea got back on the bandwagon after the loss against Liverpool over the weekend broke their undefeated streak at Stamford Bridge. The Blues burst Hull’s bubble, bringing the recently promoted team back down to earth and reminding them how hard it is to compete against this level of competition for a whole season. Hull were tied with Chelsea on points (behind in goal differential) going into the game, but Chelsea were light years ahead of them on the pitch. Lampard’s 3rd minute chip shot set the tone, and Chelsea never really let up. Hull got themselves some good chances to equalize, but the next score came from Anelka in the 50th minute as the half drew to a close. Malouda added the third in the 75th to seal the deal. Chelsea remain in second place, three points behind LIverpool, and Hull drop to fifth, tied at 20 points with Aston Villa and Man Utd.

Man Utd 2-0 West Ham

  • 1-0 Cristiano Ronaldo, 14′
  • 2-0 Cristiano Ronaldo, 30′

Liverpool 1-0 Portsmouth

  • 1-0 Steven Gerrard, 75′ pen
